Welcome to Hell's Kitchen

About


Once covered in green pastures, Hell’s Kitchen was heavily occupied by various groups of immigrants throughout the mid-1800s. From African Americans working on the Croton Aqueduct in the 1840s, to Irish and German peoples working on the Hudson River docks and Hudson River Railroad in the 1850s, it’s no surprise that Hell’s Kitchen has come to be the melting pot of cultures that it is today.

Today, this area is bursting with rich history and vibrant people. Hell’s Kitchen is now home to famous speakeasies from the Prohibition era, Off Broadway theaters, trendy restaurants and everything in between. Visitors and residents alike can enjoy the hustle and bustle of Midtown before relaxing by the waterfront or hopping over to Central Park.

With endless options for foodies, a slew of transportation options and a nightlife scene unlike any other, this tight-knit community continues to grow every day while maintaining its historic roots.

Transportation


Hell’s Kitchen boasts a variety of efficient routes to travel throughout New York City and beyond. You can buzz up or downtown using the A, C, E, B, D or 7 subway lines, hop on a transit bus, take the ferry, or venture over to New Jersey via the Lincoln Tunnel. However, transit isn’t always necessary as Hell’s Kitchen is surrounded by several other neighborhoods that are just a hop, skip and a jump away, including Chelsea, the Garment and Theater Districts and the Upper West Side.
